Flashes and floaters come in many varieties and while most are harmless, this is still considered an urgent condition. If you are experiencing flashes or floaters please call us ASAP.
Many people describe flashes as lightning streaking across their vision or arcing light in their peripheral vision. These lights are different than the traditional aura typically induced by migraine headaches. Recent flashes are always viewed as an urgent matter due to the possibility of a retinal tear, or detachment and should be taken seriously until proven benign.
Eye floaters are spots in your vision. They may look to you like black or gray specks, strings, or cobwebs that drift about when you move your eyes and appear to dart away when you try to look at them directly.
Most eye floaters are caused by age-related changes that occur as the jelly-like substance (vitreous) inside your eyes becomes more liquid. Microscopic fibers within the vitreous tend to clump and can cast tiny shadows on your retina. The shadows you see are called floaters.

Our new facility is meticulously designed to cater to our loyal patients, offering state-of-the-art equipment and a curated selection of exquisite products. We have spared no expense in ensuring that your experience with us is nothing short of exceptional.

We understand our patients, and that is why we have created a selection of frames and lenses to offer you at the Costco price point. The only difference is that our product quality is far superior.
Dr. Tumolo and Dr. Than, your trusted optometrists, are thrilled to continue providing you with the same premium care that you have come to love. Their expertise, combined with the advanced resources at our new facility, guarantees that you will receive the highest standard of eye care.
